I had the issue myself. I had been infected earlier by one of the lil rakghouls, to no effect on the progression of the questline, so I dropped the quest and got it again. Heading back out, I again was infected by a lil one, again with no effect on the progression.

This time, however, I did not reset it, went a lil further, and attacked a Ferocious Rakghoul (the big red beastie), which infected me yet again. This time, I received an on-screen message that I was infected and to proceed to the droid.

Hopefully this might be a help to someone.

This is still happening. Last night I got infected by the first one, my wife never did. We spent two hours trying... grouped, ungrouped, reset, drop quest and reacquire, etc, etc, eieio.

After 22 years as a professional programmer I understand the HUGE amount of code this game has, so I'm inclined to cut the staff a break. But it's still frustrating.

Thanks for the thread.

I did the reset method, and was infected by the very first basic nasty that I came across.

Same problem. Submitted a bug report.
Also, when I was in a party, my (one) group member got infected and her quest updated. Mine however did not. I reset the quest and it was instantly fixed.

Yes, I had the same problem until I came here, saw this suggestion, hit Reset and the very next Rakghoul infected me.

I have a theory, but I haven't tested it yet beyond this single instance. I play a Jedi Sage and my partner in crime plays a Jedi Guardian. He did reset and then got it just fine from the red Rakghouls in the tunnel, but before he did that I got him to turn off his Guard and Soresu form abilities, so he was on the same buff set as me (Sprint, Force Might, and Force Valor).

I'm wondering if the damage altering/shunting abilities somehow mess with the tracker? If not, no harm done, but if so, hopefully that can help the people who are getting the glitch even after resetting.

I reset the quest and attacked the first red rakghoul I met and it updated.

my soresu form and guard were active, i still just had to reset and then i got infected no problem.

Entering story areas seems to break the quest.

Quest still not working propertly ;\

Reseting the quest helps.
